Georgia Weekly Telegraph, Nov. 6, 1868 -- page 8 The fight at Augusta
The Chronicle and Sentinel of yesterday morning says:
About 3 o'clock pm a Radical negro named Daniel, who was formerly employed about this office, made some insulting remarks to a gentleman who was standing by the Greene Street gate of the City Hall. The latter replied to him whereupon Daniel drew his pistol. At the same time the white man drew his, and fired at the negro, who dodged the shot and ran for his life. This excited the crowd, some of whom drew their pistols and commenced firing. A mulatto named Carroll Dent, who was endeavoring to get away from the fracas, was shot in the back and killed. Two other negroes and one white man were slightly wounded. The excitement now became intense and a bloody riot appeared imminent.
Major St. Onge, in command of the Federal troops, here came out into Green street and drew his men up in line, ready for action. Several prominent citizens were soon in consultation with him, and by their united efforts quiet was restored. Guards were then stationed around the polls, and the excitement seemed about to subside when Mr. Albert G. Ruffin, the Radical Sheriff, went to arrest a young man for carrying concealed weapons. He called upon the military to make the arrest, but they refused, as it was not in their province. The Sheriff then undertook to make the arrest, which created another excitement, in the course of which a pistol was fired, and Mr. Ruffin was observed to turn very pale. Dr. Dearing went up to him and commenced to examine him, Ruffin saying not a word. In a few seconds, he fell back and, with a few gasps, expired. It was found, then that he had received a wound in the back from a pistol shot, fired by an unknown person, which caused his death.
After this, better counsels prevailed and the crowd retired from the polls.
